Well... Hello! It's Gregg here, better known as the 'Shipping Department'. It's just weeks prior to the spring trade show and it can be a little crazy at a Moda Designers studio. We 'back office types' decided to take over our designers blogs for the day.. you know.. so they can get some sewing done! Normally I don't do any of the sewing.. well actually I NEVER do any of the sewing. I do the shipping (thus the name), all the event planning, all the accounting, ordering, editing, cover photography, accounting, technical webwork, accounting (did I mention accounting yet?).. plus...

Are you ready to sew Block 4 of my quilt The Sweet Life? Dress Up Time!! Do you remember Dressing up? Maybe like your mom? or your Grandma?

There are some tools that make our lives easier. I want to share the one I use to trim Half Square Triangles. I like this Quilt in a Day ruler because one side has the numbers in halves, and the other side has full number. I adore making and using HST in quilts and since I over size and then trim, this is a much quicker method to get the accurate final square. Most of the time our HST are a half number and final size is a full number. For example = A FINISHED 4" sized HST is 4... Continue reading

Hi BettyLou! So GLAD you found me! There is no kit for my Mystery Quilt Vacation time, and a lot of the fabrics were bought up at the online Stores in Early December when the supply list was released. I do have a list of shops with my fabric so if you hunt around you can find some of them and then substitute. Or contact one that has some of the teal and ask them to put together a package for you http://patsloan.typepad.com/quiltershome/pat-sloan-fabric-lines.html/ Please join me at https://www.facebook.com/groups/QuiltWithPatSloan/ and https://www.facebook.com/PatSloanQuiltFun where I do all my quilt chat! and sign up for my newsletter at http://mad.ly/signups/99771/join
